Mexico’s incoming president, a relentless critic of the ruling elite, has voiced no objection to the free-trade deal its current government brokered with the United States. There, the left-wing Mexican populist and President Trump appear to be on a collision course. Some Trump administration officials worry that López Obrador’s team emphasizes migrant rights above law enforcement.

López Obrador’s advisers say that working with the United States on immigration will also depend on the state of the broader bilateral relationship.
